Southwest High School Reviews
During my past 2 and a half years being a student at Southwest Highschool, it’s been an amazing journey! Many events, programs, and so much more are provided for us to help on our education and for our future pathways in the real world. There is so much organizations and support throughout the Swisd district that help our education, and to help us students experience parts of the real world. The teachers, lunch ladies, coaches, custodians, and principals have nothing but good intentions for us all, which makes Southwest Highschool a bright school to be a part of. Although there are many organizations, the thing that needs to be put out more is fliers, info, or just anything to get the word out to the students that are not aware of the events that are going on.
My experience with Southwest was fairly average as I had experienced many obstacles and very little assistance. The parts that I had difficulty dealing with was with the counselors and schedule changes. Many students would complain that the counselors wouldn't change schedules unless they their parents involved in the matter. In my case many people of high authority would ridicule me just because I knew little of what we would try to conversate. However there had been many things I had enjoyed like the football games, the extracurricular activities, and the clubs. The clubs that I had participated in were HOSA (Health Occupations of America), Spanish Honors Society, and the Literature club. These clubs gave me advantages such as improving my communications, gaining social opportunities, and improving my self-esteem. I wouldn't try and change my high school experience because I met new people, developed new skills, and learned new knowledge.
What I like about Southwest High school is that they have a lot programs, college classes, some internships, all different kinds of sports, clubs, etc! You name it. When I got to the school it looked like a real college campus. It sounded so surreal because it’s a type of high school that you only see in movies. It sounded too good to be true the only disadvantage my school had was the counselors they don’t give you advice on what would benefit us, tell us what this school has, what this school offers, what they can do for you?? Things like that. In addition, the worst part is when students need there counselors they are never at their office they’re either at lunch or "busy with the other teacher" when later on you find them walking around, sitting at the office, and just waiting, waiting for nothing. It’s just sad because as us students we find out about what the school offers amongs each other and just a few teachers out of more than sixty teachers/counselors/ principal/etc.
